    New build wheel confusion

    Im picking up a used Ventana bastardo and need a set of wheels. I believe it's 135mm QR rear and 100x15 thru front. When shopping for rears, can I get wheels that are 142x12 and convert to 135mm? Does it depend on the hub..? I'm just kinda stuck on what to look for. Any suggestions around $500-600?

    Lot's of hubs like Hope, DT Swiss and others have modular end caps so you can swap between qr and thru axle.
